Eignin
When we bought this land (almost 10 years ago, I described the view as “The most beautiful view I had ever seen." Standing on the property...about 3.5 acres...Arenal Volcano dominated the landscape. And in the same view, there was Lake Arenal...not to be outdone, in front of the lower part of the volcano, was the National Park jungle...with a river, sight unseen, singing it's song 24/7. We bought the property the day we saw it. We built a beautiful contemporary home, with what you would expect in an American home...on demand hot water in every room, American plumbing where you can actually flush the toilet paper, screens on all the windows and fans on the ceilings. The bedroom is air conditioned, although in the years we have been here we have only used it once or twice. Fresh air is welcomed into the house so inside or out you can take advantage of the amazing Costa Rica weather. Come along on a verbal tour.

After you park your car in the tiled carport, you will walk through the first of 7 hand carved doors (all illustrated with carvings from photos the owner has taken.) You are astounded by the view provided by the floor to ceiling glass walls that let you be a part of nature. Your dining room table is hand made from a tree trunk slab with a tree root section as the base. The kitchen features a gas stove with 2 ovens, a large refrigerator/freezer, a walk-in pantry, coffee maker, rice maker, blender, mixer, food processor, toaster and most every other gadget you will need to cook absolutely fabulous meals. Your flat screen TV (with a satellite connection and some English programming) can be watched from the leather couch or from two comfortable chairs with ottomans. The chairs swivel 180 degrees to let you look outside through the floor to ceiling tinted windows while reading or relaxing. Your terrace wraps around much of the house giving you perfect views of Arenal Volcano, Lake Arenal, Arenal National Park and the Children's Eternal Rain Forest. A stairway leads to a private tropical garden with walking paths for you to enjoy the plantings and fauna. There you will find banana trees, pineapples, mango trees, avocado trees. wonderful eatable red hibiscus you can pick for your salads or tea, many flowering tropical plants, hummingbirds, flycatchers as well as tanagers, sometimes toucans and the white Hawk plus many others...a wonderful place to linger. You will also discover a walking trail that leads to the jungle below and then a path through the jungle to a private waterfall. There is a circle trail that will bring you "home".

Heading upstairs to your bedroom, you will find a Queen size bed and attached to the bedroom a walk out covered terrace, a perfect place for sunrise and sunset, as well as a cup of coffee, or tea, or a glass of wine. Wake to the sunrise lighting the volcano with amazing colors. Watch the clouds rise from the forest floor (we are at the 2400 foot dividing line between the rain forest and cloud forest). Your view from the upstairs terrace takes in the jungle, lake and volcano. Your bath has a wonderful walk-in rain shower that blesses your body with spring water, heated by an on-demand water heater. There is a walk-in closet for your use as well.

Without even starting your car, you can swing on the swing by our driveway with a view of the area. You can hike our private trail that leaves the back of our garden and goes down a big hill and into the Jungle, then to a path to Walden Falls where two rivers join. It is an amazingly peaceful place, where you can even take a cool shower under the falls. We even provide boots you can wear. Along this trail we see monkeys about 50% of the time during an early morning walk. Also at the top of our drive is Parrot Hill, there you can take a horseback ride to another big waterfall. You can even walk to supper at a wonderful restaurant, The Phoenix. We have been visited by three kinds of toucans, howler monkeys, spider monkeys, and white faced monkeys. Our "White Hawks" circle the area most every morning between 8:30 am and 10am. One of our guests logged 73 different bird species without walking more than a mile form the house. Otherwise snuggle on the terrace, catch some quiet moments of serenity, or catch up on that book you have wanted to read. The air is fresh and clean, the spring water is tasty, and the setting is amazing and constantly changing.

Staðsetning

El Castillo, Alajuela, Kostaríka

We strongly recommend NOT making a lot of arrangements for activities or specific plans until you arrive, EXCEPT for reservations for Zip Lining and Rafting. Both of these are often sold out. When you get here, you will find a red binder with tons of information on the house, the TV's, the trail to the waterfall, specific restaurants we love both here and in El Castillo and La Fortuna. We will share some of our favorite place for hanging bridges walks, hot springs (our favorite has many pools of varying temperatures, water slides, peaceful places, swim-up bar, lets you be there all day and includes either lunch or dinner for $26 per person). We will tell you about our most loved walk in the National Park area, a great restaurant for lunch if you choose to drive around Lake Arenal, eating places in El Castillo and the immediate area. After browsing and considering the weather, you should be better informed to plan your days and evenings. Whitehawk is in rural Costa Rica, so you will be in a small town that mostly speaks Spanish, except for the various tourist places...they all speak English as well.

Susan and I are retired. We love to travel, and about 9 years ago, we spent 8 weeks in Costa Rica. We fell in love with the climate, the people, the wildlife, the peace and quiet, the escape from the hectic pace and political fighting of the US. 2 days before we left, we discovered what I described as "The most beautiful and spiritual place I had ever experienced." There was a piece of property for sale and the day before we left, we made a commitment to buy. A few years later we decided to share our unique property and home with select others...sorry, only two at a time. John is a serious photographer and Costa Rica is a photographer's paradise. While John snaps the camera, it is Susan who provides an amazing eye, sighting birds, noticing flowers and views while seeing things that will make beautiful photos well before John sees them. If you love photography, let JOHN know in advance for some great photo ops, and if you want a few days of photography with Susan and John contact us for a 3 day escorted photo experience near us with John as your tour guide.
